I was out at Birdsong Nature Center in Grady Co. this morning. As has been
the case all over SW Georgia this spring it was really slow for neotropical
migrants. Hope this means it is good for the birds i.e. the settled weather
is allowing them to overfly the coastal plain.
There were about 25 Bobolinks in the Ginhouse Field. Also, most of the
local breeders were seen or heard: Kentucky Warbler, Prothonotary Warbler,
Acadian Flycatcher, Eastern Wood-Pewee, Orchard Oriole, White-breasted
Nuthatch, Bachman's Sparrow etc. The best sighting was a Florida
About 200 Bobolinks were present in a field in Baker Co. this past week.
All the best,
